Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not, and a sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is. - Oscar Wilde

ELO was pretty popular when I was in junior high and high school. I liked them okay, but I was more a Rush and Aerosmith kinda guy, so I only heard a few tracks on the radio – and the radio overplayed the hell out of ’em. (I’m looking at you Don’t Bring Me Down)
Now days, Jeff Lynne (guitarist) has reformed the band as Jeff Lynn’s ELO and is currently on tour with Dhani Harrison, son of the late George Harrison. If you check out the Concert For George you’ll see some excellent music from Jeff Lynne and Dhani (who is a spitting image of his father) who show up in the band along the way.
A few years gone by, and a song they didn’t play once an hour, lets me get some enjoyment out of this track. Well, that and some well done and fun animation.
